- What is the most common trait used in decision making? Why is this potentially dangerous in the field of aviation?
- How will this book and the understanding of the process of decision making affect the way I might make long and short term decisions when I am planning and executing a flight?
- How do the predictions of dopamine affect aviation decision making?
- Describe some of the physiological aspects of the brain with relation to the decision-making process (e.g. how different parts of the brain influence the process).
Global climate change is very likely the most socially underestimated, all the while most serious threat humankind is facing presently. The first aspects of climate change science were identified by scientists in the early 19th century, when the natural greenhouse effect was firstly put together. That humanly created emissions contributed to this natural effect was discovered at the end of the century. It was discussed heavily during the decades, polarising scientists between the emissions having a cooling effect and a warming one, but in the 1990s, it was clarified by the use of computer models and observational work that greenhouse gases contribute distinctly to the incalescence of our climate. Further theories advanced from this point onwards including the contribution of solar variation and volcanism to the greenhouse effect. Additionally, it was established that the warming of the atmosphere is a consequence of an increased emission of carbon dioxide (BBC 2013). 1972 the first UN environment conference took place in Stockholm; however, climate change was not discussed although already discovered and proven. 16 years later the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was founded to research on and support theories on climate change. IPCC ́s first report launched two years later. It included the certification of temperature risings over the last century which were expected to be caused by the human emissions adding up to the natural greenhouse gases. The first intergovernmental action against the impacts of climate change was initiated during the Earth Summit 1992. It was agreed on a stabilisation of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations before irreparable changes were to occur (BBC 2013). Since then many more intergovernmental meetings, protocols and agreements took place, many with unclear outcomes. Climate change still has not arrived in the public ́s daily discussion.>GET ANSWER
